Shamanic Energy Work

Sometimes we find our selves and our bodies stuck in repetitive patterns that defy our best efforts to "do" something to change the situation. Does this sound familiar to you? Often we focus on the story, become our story and we don't know how to reach the source where real change can occur. Shamanic energy practices work at the source where quick and deep change can occur.

Shamanic Energy Medicine’s main modality works with imprints in your Luminous Energy field. Its underlying principle is that our emotional, genetic and karmic history organizes energy, often leaving dense or heavy imprints in our luminous field, which create emotional and physical dysfunction. The shamans practice focuses on the whole person, body, mind and spirit and tracks the symptoms to its source. The sessions involve life coaching and instruction in the shamanic traditions. The sessions accelerate change.

If you would like a more in depth understanding of Shamanic practice, I recommend that you read Dr. Alberto Viloldo’s book, “Shaman, Healer, Sage.”


Our first session is the time when I gather information about your journey and what has brought you to see me. As we talk, I will track your energy field. Depending on what comes up for you and what I track, this will lead me to decide the work we will do together. All first sessions always begin with the Illumination Process.

The following descriptions are adapted from the work of Alberto Villoldo PhD and the Four Winds Society. 


The Illumination Process is the Shamans practice of energy medicine as taught in Light Body training. I trained with Dr. Alberto Villoldo, a medical anthropologist who trained with Native American Medicine people in the Andes and the Amazon.  This technique is based on his research. Illumination has been practiced for thousands of years and is a powerful tool for transformation. The illumination process removes intrusions, or heavy energies, from the LEF that surrounds a person. The luminous energy field holds the template for our health. Heavy energies can accumulate over the course of a lifetime and interrupt the free flow of energy through the chakras. By clearing and transforming these heavy energies, the luminous field can re-pattern the body and soul back to wellness.


Discover how energies such as fear, envy, and anger can penetrate the Luminous Energy Field. We can work to extract both crystallized energies and intrusive energies and entities, changing your affinities for toxic persons and situations.


Soul Retrieval leads us on a journey back to the Essential Self. I will track for the source of soul-loss; an original wounding that threw your life off track. You will learn to change the soul contracts that keep you fettered to this wound and to create a new map to live by. Soul retrieval allows an individual to recover their essential grace, and to retrieve innate gifts they can bring back to the world. We will work with Archetypes that are ancient structures of the psyche - archaic myths as well as forces of nature recognized by both physicists and shamans. We will discover how mythic maps shape and inform your life, and create ceremony to bring these deep undercurrents into balance. You will learn to use the tools of archetypal analysis for personal transformation. (The Four Winds Society)
